King’s Potato Pie

This winter is really dragging for me… 60 inches of snow in one season is a bit much.  In order to enjoy some part of the winter, I have still been cooking some hearty meals before springtime supposedly hits.  This week, I made sheperd’s pie… but obviously couldn’t eat the traditional dough crust on top, so I added my own gluten free twist!  The base is mashed potatoes, the middle is meat and veggies, and the top is crispy potatoes.

King’s Potato Pie

Pieces:

  1. 5-6 russet potatoes, peeled and chopped into one inch cubes
  2. 3 tbsp. vegan butter
  3. one cup coconut milk (I promise it has NO coconut flavor!)
  4. 3 tsp. lemon pepper
  5. 3 tsp. garlic salt
  6. 5 carrots, peeled and sliced into rounds
  7. one pound ground beef
  8. one cup frozen peas
  9. one quarter cup red wine vinegar
  10. one extra russet potato, washed but not peeled
  11. an olive oil mister
  12. 1 tbsp. dried parsley

Process:

  1. Peel and chop the 5-6 russet potatoes into one inch cubes.
  2. Boil several inches of water in a large pan.  Add the potatoes and boil until fork tender.  Drain.
  3. Put the potatoes back into the large pan.  Add the butter, coconut milk, 1 tsp. lemon pepper, 1 tsp. garlic salt.  Mash until desired consistency.
  4. In a large sauté pan with a half inch of water, simmer the carrot rounds just until tender. Drain any extra water.
  5. Add the ground beef, peas, red wine vinegar, 1 tsp. lemon pepper, 1 tsp. garlic salt.
  6. Saute until the beef is cooked through.  Drain any extra liquid.
  7. In a large baking dish, spread the mashed potatoes.  Layer the beef mixture on top.
  8. On top of the beef mixture, use a mandolin to shave potato slices from the extra russet potato.  Cover the beef mixture evenly with potato slices.
  9. Using an olive oil mister, spray the potato slices lightly with oil so they will crisp.
  10. Sprinkle 1 tsp. lemon pepper, 1 tsp. garlic salt, and dried parsley on top.
  11. Bake at 350 degrees about 20 minutes, until potatoes crisp on top.
  12. Serve hot.

Shrimp, Peppers, and Onions over Arugula Pasta

My family has an inside joke to hide any shrimp at holiday gatherings because I will eat it all.  I do really love shrimp!  Grilled… with cocktail sauce… or over pasta.  Here is a great mom- inspired shrimp over pasta recipe that is easy and full of flavor.  Perfect for summer!

Shrimp, Peppers, and Onions over Arugula Pasta

Pieces:

  1. one half of an onion, chopped
  2. three celery stalks, chopped
  3. 3 peppers, cut into long strips… your favorite colors
  4. one pound of shrimp, peeled
  5. 4 tbsp. olive oil
  6. 2 tsp. chopped garlic
  7. one half cup white wine
  8. 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  9. 2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
  10. 2 tsp. red pepper flakes
  11. 4 cups arugula
  12. one box of gluten free pasta
  13. salt and pepper to taste

Process:

  1. In a large saute pan, add the onion, celery, garlic, and 2 tbsp. olive oil.  Saute just until tender.
  2. Add the pepper strips and 2 tbsp. olive oil.
  3. When the onion, celery, and peppers are soft, add the peeled shrimp, white wine, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, and red pepper flakes.  Saute until the shrimp are cooked through and pink.
  4. Cook the gluten free pasta according to package directions.
  5. Serve in a layer… pasta in a bowl, a handful of arugula, and then the shrimp mixture on top.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.
